The TTUHSC El Paso libraries provide access to 100% of the same online resources as the other TTUHSC libraries, as well as additional online resources available only to the El Paso campus.

Current technical limitations prevent library systems from recognizing a patron as being equally associated with both the El Paso campus and another TTUHSC campus. All El Paso patrons, including those with a dual association (for example, a TTUHSC El Paso employee who is also a TTUHSC Lubbock distance student) should use only the El Paso libraries for online library resources.

We are also aware of one technical issue that may incorrectly give the impression that you do not have access via El Paso when you really do. Some databases include a Check Availability icon adjacent to search results. Until our vendors can differentiate between El Paso and other campuses, this link always targets Lubbock, and El Paso patrons are turned away.  There is currently no solution for this issue until the El Paso separation is complete. El Paso patrons should ignore the Check Availability icon and instead manually confirm article access via a search of the El Paso GoldRush.
